Pollinator Monitoring Scheme (UK)

Thanks go to Sonya )Plot 97B) for suggesting this post.

This citizen science research project gives details of 14 pollinator-friendly flowers and invites participants to monitor plants and visitors in a set square of their plot.

Follow this link to the POMS website.

Seed Saving Workshop

This session will be of interest to plotters. Scott Dow (Micro-plotter) or Phil (Plot 35) can offer some background if needed.

Timber!

We recently received a very kind donation of pallet wood and other timbers from The Robertson Group.  Some lengths have been set aside to meet a request from Orchard Brae School for a number of raised beds. However, there are some that are surplus to requirements and are now offered to plotters for use on their plots.

These timbers have been placed by the Bothy. Please take what you need and can use immediately.  We are hoping they will be shared around and we are expecting further deliveries in the future.

New Council Gardening Blog

Plotters will be interested to know that Aberdeen City Council now hosts a new Gardening Blog.

The site is hosted by Daniel Shand and promises all sorts of local info and opportunities and is off to a great start in the first episode.

Opportunities Galore!

Scotmid Donation to GFAA

I am delighted to say that GFAA has received a £200 donation from the Scotmid Co-operative Society via their fund to support communities across Scotland.

We are pleased to receive a grant of £200 to spend on tools for use in the Community Garden and Primary Plot.  We are going to buy handtools adapted especially for younger gardeners and those with disabilities who might find full-size adult tools too heavy or unwieldy.

Our warm thanks got to Scotmid for their generosity.
